Williamsburg Scottish Festival and Celtic Celebration president,
Howard Topp announced to the festival's board of directors at its monthly
meeting that Granville Charles Gordon, the 13th Marquis of Huntly and the
Chief of Clan Gordon has accepted the offer to be the 2002 festival's
Silver Anniversary "Guest of Honor."
Topp stated that Lord
Huntly would also represent this year's Honored Clan: The House of Gordon.
He commented that Lord Huntly would preside over the festival's many
activities on the ground of the Williamsburg Winery on September 28, 2002.
Topp noted that the
acceptance by Lord Huntly continued the festival's commitment to the
heritage of the clan system by honoring a clan and its chief or designated
representative at the annual event. The Williamsburg festival has
previously honored Sir William MacPherson of Cluny, David Ross of Ross,
Brigadier Ronald MacLennan of Mac Lennan, Lord Rothes and other Clan
Chiefs and Scottish personalities.
President Topp stated that
2002 Williamsburg festival, the "Silver Anniversary" of the event, would
be the most ambitious in its history. He noted that more than 50 clans and
Scottish and Celtic societies were expected to join the House of Gordon
and participate by erecting clan tents and displays along "Clan Row."
Topp also explained that a
special venue for "traditional" Celtic music would supplement the popular
"Scottish Pub" entertainment site. The popular group "Celi Rain" and
performer Martin Marron would be headliners at the Pub Tent site, while
the well-known group "Iona" and balladeer Colin Grant-Adams would be
featured at the traditional "Silver Anniversary Tent."
Topp provided biographical
information on Lord Huntly, as well. Huntly was born in Aberdeen and was
educated at Grodonstoun. He pursued a career in journalism until 1972 when
he returned to his ancestral home, Aboyne Castle in Aberdeenshire. The
castle has been in ruins for more than 50 years at the time. Nonetheless,
he began the project of restoring the historic site.
The restoration took more
than seven years to suitably complete the 16th century tower house in the
traditional Scottish manner. Lord Huntly subsequently continued his
education in business administration and became involved in several
business interests. Most notably, he and his son Alistair founded a
company to produce and sell "Cock o' the North Single Malt Whisky
Lord Huntly is married to
the Lady Catheryn and the couple has four children. Most of the children
are grown and reside in Aberdeenshire are of Scotland. Lady Catheryn is
expected to accompany him on the trip to Williamsburg for the September
